Fountain Square, Cincinnati

4.4
Attend a free concert, admire the centrally located fountain, and gaze at the giant LED screen at Fountain Square. The center of the city’s civic, social, and commercial life, the square features water jets spouting from the floor that kids can run through, restaurants and pubs, plenty of tables and chairs, and an ice rink in the winter,. The 13 m (43 ft) bronze fountain in the middle of the square displays four figures representing the four principal uses of water--steam, water-power, navigation, and fisheries--around one central figure. If you need refreshment, lap up spouts of fresh water--the piece was designed as a drinking fountain. Park your car in the garage under the square for a fee, or lock your bike to the complimentary bicycle racks in the square.

  • I attended a free White Party. Everyone dressed in white, dancing, laughing, taking pictures, seeing old friends, meeting new ones, great live music, food vendors, secure and safe for all. Can't wait ...  more »
  • Water water everywhere! One of the most dynamic and interesting statues (sculptures) anywhere. A place for photos and deep reflection and free to walk up to.  more »

  • Great place to visit during lunch breaks. All the food trucks and tents set up through the week are almost always quality merchants with a great diverse array of options. Often having evening and night events as the weather permits. Very nice place to visit
  • Fountain Square is the heartbeat of Cincinnati! The are so many great things that they offer both to and from the city that it is almost hard to believe that a trip there won't cost you anything! From free concerts and summertime festivals to Christmas trees and ice skating in the winter. We are lucky enough to have a beautiful fountain there where you can even grab a quick lunch and just sit in the sun! I can't say enough about this place! As Always, Enjoy!
